On my iBook Clamshell (G3, ATI Rage Mobility M3 AGP 2x (rev 02)), I
couldn't use the ati driver with Fedora 9 because, as Xorg.0.log says,
it can't open the frame buffer device.
I've got a PowerBook G3 I recently inherited that has the exact same
issue (and the exact same video chipset).
I successfully used the fbdev
driver, but it's not accelerated.
This works for me too.
I later found a workaround to
Make sure the Device section has at least these:
#the above can also be Driver "r128"
Option "UseFBDev" "false"
Make sure the Screen section includes this:
Option "NoInt10" "true"
This doesn't work for me, I get maybe 800x600 worth of functioning
screen real estate, with the rest containing assorted junk offset from
other parts of the screen (1024x768 display, iirc).
Been meaning to file a bug myself, but haven't got around to it...
